I got the back of the Halloween Quilt completed. When Frank comes home I have three quilts that he can help me sandwich on the carport. How do you do your big stuff?
And I was puttzing around with the extras from the Taking Names Quilt that I pattern tested. These are the ones one of the participants did incorrectly and they turned out too small. There are 12 of them and I figured they would make a pretty cool modern baby quilt.
Look what I found in there!
That would be a cool medallion for a grey and orange quilt. That is my grey and white checkerboard. I am not sure I want to use it for that, but it looks great. I have other greys I can put there. Maybe a more solid reading background would be better anyway.
I am waffling about what to work on next. I have so much stuff to work on and I want to do so many things, I get overwhelmed and don't know what to do next! So I decided to talk to you for a while!
OK. I know what I am doing now. I found this great quilt on the internet and fell in love. But I could not find anything about who owned it, where it came from or if there was a pattern. And I am usually pretty good about FBI work like that. So I set out to make my own. I decided I could make the airplanes two ways. One was paperpiecing, which I love to do. The other was to make a paper airplane out of material and stitch it on. I decided on the paperpiecing after making several tries that didn't work with way #2.
Here is my first airplane.
I have two other airplanes to make. They soar across the sky. I am thinking about putting some words in there too. SOAR seems too trite. Can you think of anything that would be really unique?
I may work all night on the other two!
